ISGM Podcast: The Concert #6 - Schubert's Songs, With and Without Words - Part 2




The program begins with another of Schubert's Impromptus for piano, this one in F minor. We then return to the second half of the song cycle “Winterreise,” beginning with the song “Die Post.” In this song, our narrator sees the arriving mailman and hopes, wistfully and maybe foolishly, that he will bring a letter from his beloved. But as the narrator journeys on, his hopes gradually dim, “falling,” he says, “like autumn leaves from a tree.” “I am finished with dreaming,” he later sings. And by the end of the cycle, he has lost all hope that his love will be returned.

Find a translation of “Winterreise” on our website, www.gardnermuseum.org.

Recorded live in the Tapestry Room of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston.
